Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 1:5

_ _ Why — rather, as Vulgate, “On what part.” Image from a body covered all over with marks of blows (Psalms 38:3). There is no part in which you have not been smitten.

_ _ head ... sick, etc. — not referring, as it is commonly quoted, to their sins, but to the universality of their punishment. However, sin, the moral disease of the head or intellect, and the heart, is doubtless made its own punishment (Proverbs 1:31; Jeremiah 2:19; Hosea 8:11). “Sick,” literally, “is in a state of sickness” [Gesenius]; “has passed into sickness” [Maurer].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 1:2-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 1:5

Head — The very head and heart of the body politick, from whence the plague is derived to all the other members.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 1:5

Why should ye be (i) stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole (k) head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

(i) What good is it to seek to mend you by punishment, seeing that the more I correct you, the more you rebel?

(k) By naming the chief parts of the body, he signifies that there was no part of the whole body of the Jews free from his rods.
